BLAZING AHEAD   Saturday, November 18, 2 pm
Join us Saturday afternoon for Author Jeffrey Ryan who will be at White Birch Books to sign copies of his highly acclaimed books: APPALACHIAN ODYSSEY: A 28-year hike on America’s trail and his newly released BLAZING AHEAD: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that Built the Appalachian Trail.

APPALACHIAN ODYSSEY is an informative, fun read that invites everyone along for the adventure. As one reviewer put it, “it may surprise people that I thoroughly enjoyed a memoir about hiking the Appalachian Trail. But I did!”

The former Executive Editor of National Geographic has written that “Appalachian Odyssey is destined to be a classic of nature and travel writing.” It is a story of enduring friendship infused with historical perspective and the joys of staying true to a vision that culminate in a singularly entertaining journey.

Few know the story behind the creation of the world’s longest hiking-only trail. The proposal could have died in the pages of a journal had it not been for the efforts of many people ― including two, in particular: Benton MacKaye and Myron Avery.

Jeff Ryan is an avid hiker who has hiked on a number of long-distance trails including the Pacific Crest Trail, the Appalachian Trail and the New England National Scenic Trail. His perspectives on the evolution of hiking equipment and the history of hiking add depth to his lectures. He has appeared in hundreds of venues throughout the United States.


Friday, November 24

Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the big box store "Black Friday" and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays.

The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses.

This year we will be celebrating all day by wearing our plaid attire along with the many other locally owned, independent businesses of The White Mountain Independents AND we want you to get into the spirit too by wearing your plaid garb and when you do we will give you 10% off any book in the store (some minor restrictions apply) and if you spend $50 we will give you a locally made plaid scarf from Ragged Mountain Equipment.

So be sure to stop by White Birch Books and look for the blue flags flying outside the other White Mountain Independents around the valley!
